Narrative

A trough, 600 to 900 metres deep, through which the Koettlitz Glacier formerly flowed north to Walcott Bay. The trough is bifurcated at its southern end, the east and west channels being separated by the Almond. The entrances are marked by proximity to Pyramid Nuntak from Walcott Bay. (NB Pyramid is not a nunatak). Named by the VUWAE, 1960-61.
